You have to read The Shunning first. I LOVED this book I started it today and finished it today. I couldn't put it done. Any normally I do not read Christian romance books.

Katherine Mayfield (aka Katie Lapp) sets out to find her birth mother. Time is short, and there is deception in the Mayfield-Bennett household. Meanwhile, Katie's adoptive family struggles to deal with the reality of Katie's harsh Shunning and her decision to leave the colony.

This is the second book in the trilogy; the first is The Shunning; the third is The Reckoning. I found that this book in the series doesn't stand well on its own; it really helps if you have read the first book.

A little "preachy" and too coincidental in parts, but overall, the series is an entertaining story about Katherine (aka Katie) and her loves, losses, and new life.

This series is vastly different in my opinion from the other Amish books by the same author. To me this is too English. But there is one more to read int he series so maybe it will come back around again.

From Library Journal
Katie Lapp has known no other world than that of the Amish who raised her. Since her refusal to accept their ways fully has resulted in her being shunned (see The Shunning, Bethany, 1997), Katie takes refuge with a Mennonite family and tracks down her biological mother. However, Katie soon realizes that Laura Mayfield-Bennett is not only mortally ill but also married to a man more concerned with her money than with her. This undemanding book gives a good portrait of an Amish girl facing the outside world for the first time but is too dependent on coincidence to be fully believable. Still, a pleasant enough story that will be welcome in larger collections.

From the back cover...

Katie Lapp's identity had been shattered the moment she found the satin baby dress in the attic of her parents Amish home. Painfully torn from her close knit community in the frightening ordeal all the shunning, Katie-now Katherine Mayfield-sets out to find the ailing birth mother she has never known.

Her journey takes her to the peaceful home of Lydia Miller, where electric lights and telephones set Katherine's mind whirling with "fancy" things, and on to the elaborate Bennett estate in the Finger Lakes region of New York. There she stumbles into a world of compassion and greed, mercy and betrayal-where the plain garb of the Amish is misused to disguise an evil conspiracy.

Unknown to Katherine, her first love, Daniel, is taking appropriate steps to return to his Amish family-and to her. But their worlds may have drifted too far apart to bridge...

Shunned from her home and alone in the world of strangers, Katherine Mayfield longs only for the gentle, loving embrace of the woman she hopes to call Mother.

This is the sequel to the author's The Shunning, which I have not read. This book was interesting to me, it goes into the Amish culture. Katherine is this book goes looking for her birth mother and this is the story of her search. There is a 3rd book in the series as well.
